Thanks to Our Indian Election Commission for tie up with the "US Based" Internet Giant Google, Now NSA can easily get the info of every Indian citizen.

According to Times of India, Google and Election Commission have entered into an agreement under which Google will help EC to manage online registration of new voters and facilitation services ahead of the 2014 elections.

The registered voters can check the address at which they are registered and get directions to the nearest polling station.

Cyber Security experts says the EC'S move will impact national security and democracy itself.

"It is shocking that in a country like India which is called world's software superpower, Election Commission, instead of an Indian company, has chosen a foreign company like Google, which has colluded with American intelligence agencies like NSA (National Security Agency) for global cyberspying, to provide electoral registration and facilitation services by providing them the whole database of registered voters in India," TOI quoted the Indian Infosec Consortium as saying.

The group said it will pose a potential risk to India, as the data could possibly misused by Google and US agencies for cyber espionage.

Rajsekhar Murthy, another member of the consortium, said the poll panel should have spoken to Indian companies such as Infosys or TCS before jumping into such a decision. "Cost wise it is not much," he said.
